Loudoun Chamber Teams with Telos Corporation on Obtaining Facility Clearances Event

Lansdowne, Virginia – Join the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce’s GovCon Initiative on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, to explore the importance of security clearances for businesses hoping to obtain government contracts.

Hosted by Telos Corporation, a 2017 Cogswell Award winner, this event will provide attendees with practical knowledge and best practices from industry experts who have successfully navigated the facility clearance process. Acquiring and maintaining a facility clearance is a major obstacle faced by government contractors seeking prime contract awards.

Following keynote remarks from Telos’ Christopher Pursell, a panel will take center stage to discuss challenges all contractors face when obtaining facility clearances and sponsorships.
